The Rencontres d’Arles festival opens today. We will be providing coverage through Sunday. Schools, especially those from Arles, will be featured prominently. A harbinger of change, perhaps? We know that François Hébel has plans to make Arles into a permanent center of photography, modeled after the International Center of Photography in New York. Will this project be compatible with Maya Hoffmann’s? Will they be able to find the necessary funding? (We’re talking 48 million euros.) Will local dissent undo the whole project? Perhaps by Sunday, we’ll have the answer.
